LAST YEAR’S WINNER Seán Kelly with his wife Cathleen.

The Mayo Association Dublin have extended the deadline for the receipt of nominations to tomorrow, Wednesday, December 20.  The nominations guidelines and criteria can be found on their website: http://www.mayoassociationdublin.com/2017/11/10/nominations-annual-awards-open-november/
To qualify for the Mayo Person of the Year Award or Young Mayo Person of the Year (under 25) the person must have been born in Mayo, or of Mayo parentage, or who has lived in Mayo for not less than seven years and who, in the opinion of a panel of three independent adjudicators, has made an exceptional contribution to Mayo or its people.
The Meitheal of the Year award will be presented to a voluntary group or organisation based in Mayo, whose majority of its membership were born in Mayo or of Mayo parentage and who, in the opinion of the adjudicators, have achieved the greatest distinction or done most for the county or its people. The nomination submissions should include any relevant information on the contribution of the nominee to Mayo directly and indirectly. A strong application generally includes an executive summary, various narratives/articles reflecting the various contributions/achievements of the nominee and may include letters of support for the nomination.
Nominations for these awards are requested in hard copy and if in hard copy they should be bound and submitted by post in triplicate to the Hon Secretary, 14 Upper Fitzwilliam Street, Dublin 2 by Wednesday, December 20. Soft copy submissions will be accepted by email to secretary@mayoassociationdublin.com. For further information contact Grace Heneghan on 087 2873250 or Julie Doyle on 087 9150787.
